Boris Jelzin’s 15th Anniversary of Death († April 23, 2007)

He goes down in the history books as Russia's first democratically elected head of state, who in the process became a tragic figure of profound change in the post-Soviet Union - Boris Yeltsin.

Yeltsin was born in the Urals in 1931 to a family of peasants. During perestroika he had earned a reputation of respect among the population for his uncompromising approach to fighting corruption and privilege. In June 1991, he emerged as the clear winner in the presidential elections of the Russian republic and, a short time later, proved his steadfastness during the anti-reform August putsch in Moscow. In the ensuing months, he pushed ahead with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the removal of its president, Mikhail Gorbachev. Under his leadership, the Russian Federation then succeeded the USSR in the newly founded Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) at the end of the year.

Yeltsin's first years were marked by a move toward democracy and a market economy, as well as rapprochement with the West, but he failed at the end of his two terms in office.

The rapid and rigorous privatization he carried out on the advice of Western advisers plunged large segments of the population into poverty, promoted corruption, organized crime and, last but not least, the rise of the oligarchy. It eventually led to a tangible economic crisis that resulted in Russia's insolvency.

The power struggle with parliament culminated in an attempted coup d'état, which Yeltsin crushed with the help of tanks. The president then granted himself far-reaching powers to assert his power. The intervention in the breakaway republic of Chechnya also turned into a fiasco, with tens of thousands people killed.

Yeltsin also increasingly struggled with health problems; in addition to several heart attacks, he suffered from excessive alcohol consumption and severe depression. In his last year of service, he was also accused of bribery and personal enrichment.

On New Year's Eve 1999, he resigned from office and provisionally handed over the reins of government to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who was elected the new president in May 2000. Yeltsin died of heart failure on April 23, 2007, at the age of 76.
